    By Michele Allen Winkler The hard work and passion of local craftsman, designer and businessman J.D. Gass has brought a bright spot to downtown West Fork.  On April 5, 2013 J.D. Antiques had its grand opening at the old hardware store on Main Street. Among the museum quality treasures found here are a very unique safe found in Philadelphia and restored by J.D., beautiful chairs complete with attractive upholstery,  rugs, dishes and paintings. J.D. moved here 14 years ago, and for some time used the building to store items that he sold wholesale and at auctions.  Many people asked about buying some pieces directly from him, so about 2 months ago he decided to open this retail store. The array of beautifully restored furniture didn’t come without considerable effort. While laughing and saying, “I did it all on my own,” he also nodded to his three children Gabriel, Morgan and Payton acknowledging that they also helped to make the day a reality.  His wife Ciara, and friend and fellow restorer Josh were there to round out this hard working group.

    Problems and issues relating to “communication” have been an ongoing topic of discussion for several past council meetings. At the March meeting, the topic returned, leading to the following council action. From the unapproved minutes provided by the city: New Business        Communication – Alderman Rossetti, [former planning commission chair] for business to be done expediently, we need to get resolved who does what. We need policy and procedures for the Mayor’s office as well as for department heads, so that we don’t have the confusion due to lack of good communication. Standard procedures need to be well defined.        Sergeant [current and former alderman Bill Sergeant] requests a definition of duties by each person and assign those duties, put it in writing, and stop the duplication of decisions. Motion made by Nelson [former police chief (20) years and current alderman Mike Nelson] that the Mayor make an organizational chart to present to the Council in April to look at and discuss. And to work with the Department Heads on this.  2nd by Shafer (two term alderman) Motion carried.
